We Need to Talk About Yemen

Emily Knowles

This briefing by Emily Knowles examines the extent of the UK’s involvement in the current crisis in Yemen. The story of UK involvement in the current crisis in Yemen is hard to unravel, a task that is not helped by contradictory government statements, the lack of transparency surrounding government policies, and confusing distinctions between different types of UK assistance to members of the Saudi-led coalition on the front lines of the war. The briefing argues that greater transparency over the UK’s role in the conflict would benefit the government for many domestic reasons, particularly given the levels of public and parliamentary scepticism about arms sales and secret wars.
